SUN SEP 1 2/LT/28 First Sunday Ride
Leader: Jim O'Melia     (925) 262-3882
Meet at 9:45 am for a 10:00 am start
Start Location: Pleasant Hill BART

This ride is a leisurely paced (12mph) social ride on flat terrain and is an out and back route.  If you are new to group riding or haven't been on your bike in a while, this may be just the ride you are looking for.  Join us on this ride through Danville and on up Camino Tassajara to Blackhawk Plaza and Draeger's Market for a patio lunch and then return the same way.

SUN SEP 1 3/LT/34 Novice Ride #5 - Franklin Canyon and Carquinez Shoreline

Meet at 10:00 am for a 10:15 am start
GPC Route: Novice Ride #5: Franklin Canyon & Carquinez Shoreline
Start Location: Pleasant Hill BART
UPDATE:

ALERT - There will be no BART service on Sunday between Orinda and Walnut Creek. There will also be delays on HWY 24, so allow extra time to get to Pleasant Hill Bart. BART will provide buses, but no estimate of how much time this will take.  I will be taking BART to Orinda and riding to Pleasant Hill, 11.5 miles.  If you would like to join me, call me at 510-847-3948 to coordinate time.  Jim Scott

Ride through Pleasant Hill and out Franklin Canyon with longer but gentle hills. A fabulous descent into Crockett, followed by great views of Carquinez Strait from a multi-use path on the return. One spot is frequently foggy/cold, so carry an extra layer (jacket). Bring lunch or $ to buy. Leaders Jim Scott, Karen Street, John Buenfil

Note that we'll be starting at Helen Putnam Park, about a mile from the starting point on this cue sheet. The park usually costs $7 for parking (yes, they take credit cards), but there's a possibility it may be free on Labor Day? There's a possibility it won't be either, so be prepared just in case! Bring snacks and water, and be able to follow a cue sheet if you think you'll be faster or slower than the posted pace. Hope to see you there!

Join Kent and Estella on a “gourmet” Blackberry Bicycle Ride … We are going to pick up berries as we ride along very scenic roads in rural Sonoma County. It is a truly beautiful ride, with views of the ocean. We will start and end at Cotati Train Station near Hwy 101 north of Petaluma. We will stop at Tomales Bakery around mile 16 … A little bit of cash will bring you the opportunity to get a scone, or another treat. Expected time to begin riding is 10:00 a.m. The expected time to complete the loop is 5-6 hours, which means we will be done by 3 or 4 p.m. depending of how many berries we can collect and eat. Please allow 1 hour 15 minutes for the drive up from the Bay Area, and 1 hour 30 minutes for the return drive.

We encourage carpooling; the leaders will attempt to organize carpools, but you need to contact them in advance. Please allow sufficient time to get to the start point by 9:30 a.m. If you are coming late, please text Kent ahead of time at 510-759-6646.

SAT SEP 28 5/TM/69 * Peninsula loop over Old LaHonda and Tunitas Creek roads.
Leader: David Brown     (510) 654-7806
Meet at 8:30 am for a 8:45 am start
Start Location: Woodside Town Hall
UPDATE:

I've been warned that west Old LaHonda road (past skyline) is closed, so I've re-routed us around that.  If we get there and the road is clearly passable we'll still take west Old LaHonda.  Note too that the Jensie gran fondo will use the same roads on the same day, but starting from Half Moon Bay.  I doubt we will encounter any of those riders.

This loop goes over 2 classic peninsula climbs, Old LaHonda and Tunitas Creek.  The terrain is rugged and frequently remote, the payoff is the beautiful landscape and peaceful roads.  There will be minimal rest stops, with a bathroom/water break at McDonald park, a snack/water break in Pescadero, and a lunch break in Half Moon Bay, plus quick regroups as necessary.  There is a bailout option that saves 16 miles and 1200' of climbing by skipping the loop around Higgins Canyon, Purisima creek, and the Lobitos creek cutoff.  If there's enough interest we can have dinner at Bucks in Woodside after the ride.  Ride details are at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30990202   Please contact me if you have any questions.
